Bill Bowerman, co-founder of Nike and Olympic track and field Coach says, “If you have a body you are an athlete”. Consider using that quote to unleash the possibility that you will become a Champion in your personal health vision.
Viewing yourself as an Athlete, a Victor, or a Competitor will change how you see yourself in your journey to health. It doesn't necessarily mean that you will be competing in the Olympics, or trying out for the NFL- It's just you shifting your thoughts and assuming a Health Identity.

Here's How You Do It.
1. Stop all that you are doing, and take a deep breath, hold it for 3 seconds and then exhale long and empty your lungs. Do that again. And again, perhaps close your eyes.
2. Imagine your body as Victor, Leader, Hero, or Competitor. What do you look like? How are you standing? Where do your eyes look? What are your arms doing? Are they crossed, open, at your sides? Is your chest open and proud? How does your mind feel? Clear, focused, determined? What about your spirit? Energetic, calm, peaceful, open to possibility?
3. Open your eyes. Set your physical, mind and spirit into what you just imagined. Breathe in again. YOU ARE READY!
You have nothing to lose, because youu were born a Winner!
